Early postnatal and long-term effects of maternal stress or prenatal glucocorticoid on sex-related peculiarities of the brain morphology, biogenic monoamine turnover, testosterone metabolism, hypothalamic noradrenaline (NA) and adrenocortical responses to an acute stress were studied in Wistar rat offsprings.
